    I'm planning our second trip to WDW after having a travel agent do it last year. I feel fairly confident doing this thanks to everyone on this forum:thumbsup2. We are doing a split stay, 5 nights at CSR preferred room and 4 nights at BC garden view. So I have been looking around online for a map of each resort with a listing of room numbers showing where the rooms are and I can't find one. I'm hoping someone on here could tell me where I can find these or if not please tell me what area or room numbers we should request. In CSR I think we will be in casita's so not many options but maybe what floor and why such as we are light sleepers so maybe top floor?? or are those club level? IDK? In BC we love the idea of being close to Epcot so should we ask for a room in that end of the building? We also love swimming so should we ask for a room closest to storm along bay? Please give me your opinion.

    Don't get too caught up with the idea of asking for a specific room number. The odds of you getting such a specific request are astronomically low. You're much better off just asking for a particular area of the resort (ie: a certain floor, building, or view).

    Here is a link to a page which links to all of the WDW Resort maps:

    Also, if the room number you request isn't available, they're not going to know why you wanted it and therefore won't know what a suitable substitute would be.

    I would suggest asking on the FAQ threads for each of the resorts.

    I agree, it's not best to request room #. Just request what you want, for CSR what casita you want, and just ask for quiet location if that's your most important request.

    At BC you will have to decide what is most important, location near Epcot or SAB. Near lobby? Full balcony?
    You can only have 1 or 2 requests, in order of importance. For us, having a full balcony was the most important, so that was the only thing I requested at BC.
